Children are not little adults as far as the testing parameters go for evaluation of visual function we need to adapt and modify our testing protocol to meet the needs of the child. We adopt a holistic approach to functional binocular vision evaluation. Often issues arise from eye teaming and binocular vision dysfunction rather than just a seeing problem. We take the time to engage with our pediatric patients and ensure that every effort is taken to give them the best start possible. We are an aligned optometrist with Lady Cilento Children's Hospital and a part of the Paediatric Optometry Alignment program. This is part of the LCCH Ophthalmology Department expanding their reach of its education program and our way of helping Queensland children's access to quality eye care.
